story. our own dan lothian and dana bash, they are both standing by live. but first cnn's poppy harlow breaks down the numbers. >> hi there, wolf. i think the headline for this jobs report is disappointing. only 80,000 jobs created in the month of june. unemployment stays at 8.2%. we need to be creating somewhere between 300,000 and 400,000 jobs a month pretty consistently to bring that rate down. issues here 12.7 million americans still unemployed in this country. 5.4 million of them have been out of work for six months or longer. the longer you're out of work, the longer it takes you to find a job. that is a problem. also very key here. 2.5 million people are not counted in this unemployment rate at all. they can work, but they have stopped looking for work. so they're not counted in the unemployment rate. so it's actually higher than 8.2%. also very key here is minorities. we have to look at what has happened to african-americans. their unemployment rate has gone up for the month of may. it's now nearly 14.5%. it is pretty much double unemployment for whites, hispanics, 11% unemploy
of a legal battle. cnn's jim spellman is following the development from arapahoe county, colorado. tell us more on this. >> reporter: yeah. hello. last monday this notebook from james holmes arrived at the university of colorado there in the mail room. addressed to this psychiatrist he was seeing there at the school. so we know that the police came and they took that. now there's this gag order in effect. so law enforcement are not supposed to be talking to the media. but there was apparently what other media outlets called leaks that reported these were writings from holmes saying he was going to hurt people with drawings of people with guns and violent imagery, things like that. so the defense from holmes says, look, there's been the leaks. this is privileged material between a patient and a doctor. we want this material. the da's office says these leaks are inaccurate. they're not right. they don't have accurate sourcing. we don't want to give it to you. the judge said we're going to have a hearing about this monday. we'll decide. what it does tell us though is that, one, he was seeking
's view? >> well, honestly, carol, mitt romney has done a couple of interviews. one with cnn's piers morgan and another on "the today show" on nbc and he is not really acknowledging publicly some of the criticism he's gotten here in london since those comments he made to nbc a couple of days ago about the city's readiness for the olympic games. you mentioned those headlines in the london newspapers. i have the one you just mentioned in "the sun," mitt the twit. i think this morning it's safe to say that the romney campaign probably has a new use for the olympic torch, and that is to burn some of these headlines, carol. but let me play for you some of what romney said on piers morgan last night, because piers asked romney about this criticism, and he didn't really seem to acknowledge it. here's what he had to say. >> you've been slightly criticized on knocking the british enthusiasm. are you feeling it now? >> well, i'm delighted to see the kind of support that has been around the torch, for instance. i watched last night on bbc an entire program about the torch being run across great

he misspoke in that conference call. let's bring in our cnn chief political analyst gloria borger in "the situation room" as well. the ad we just saw in dan's piece, part of a broader picture that the obama administration, the obama campaign is trying to project. >> as you know this is the summer when it's time to define your opponent. it's not rocket science here, wolf. what the obama campaign is trying to do is paint a very, very unflattering portrait of mitt romney. he is, according to the obama campaign, secretive, tax avoiding businessman who outsources jobs and cares nothing about the middle class. that is of course on top of his wealth. so it's a caricature but sometimes care ka churs can stick particularly when you're spending $25 million a month most of which is in negative advertising. so that can stick. and the problem for romney right now is that unless he releases his taxes or continues to -- or give some more information about his taxes or even bain, these questions will be raised. don't forget, wolf, you were there. these questions were raised by his republican oppo

the president should apologize. the president tells cnn affiliate, that is not going to happen. >> no, we won't be apologizing. and i don't -- sometimes these games are played during political campaigns. understand what the issue is here. mr. romney claims that he's mr. fix-it for the economy, because of his business experience. i think voters entirely legitimately want to know, well, what exactly was that business experience? >> okay, condi rice keeps saying she doesn't want to be vice president, but her name keeps coming up. earlier tonight, i spoke with cnn contributors and will offered reasons why rice will not be on the ticket. >> we can run through the reasons why rice doesn't make sense to be the v.p. candidate. most important of which is, she is pro-choice. and that is somewhat of a deal killer for any republican running for national office. as you just said, poppy, she doesn't want to be vice president. so, it's a nonstarter. and the timing of it is obvious, because changing the subject, let's not talk about bain bain /* bain. by the way, conversation was a subject changer from the j
